How to Upgrade Amazon Aurora MySQL from 5.6 to 5.7

Over time, software evolves and it is important to stay up to date if you want to benefit from new features and performance improvements.  Database engines follow the exact same logic and providers are always careful to provide an easy upgrade path. With MySQL, the mysql_upgrade tool serves that purpose.

A database upgrade process becomes more challenging in a managed environment like AWS RDS where you don’t have shell access to the database host and don’t have access to the SUPER MySQL privilege. This post is a collaboration between Fattmerchant and Percona following an engagement focused on the upgrade of the Fattmerchant database from Amazon Aurora MySQL 5.6 to Amazon Aurora MySQL 5.7. Jacques Fu, the CTO of Fattmerchant, is the co-author of this post.  Our initial plan was to follow a path laid out previously by others but we had difficulties finding any …

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) 1.17.1 Is Now Available

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) is a free and open-source platform for managing and monitoring MySQL®, MongoDB®, and PostgreSQL performance. You can run PMM in your own environment for maximum security and reliability. It provides thorough time-based analysis for MySQL®, MongoDB®, and PostgreSQL® servers to ensure that your data works as efficiently as possible.

In this release, we are introducing support for detection of our upcoming PMM 2.0 release in order to avoid potential version conflicts in the future, as PMM 1.x will not be compatible with PMM 2.x.

Another improvement in this release is we have updated the Tooltips for Dashboard MySQL Query Response Time by providing a description of what the graphs display, along with links to related documentation resources. An example of Tooltips in action:

Supercharge your Reporting: Aurora Autoscaling and Custom Endpoints

Whenever we talk about the scalability of databases its end up with a lot of discussions and effort to implement. Some of you may even argue that it is a bad idea to auto scale the transactional databases. But the pace of innovation in databases — particularly on a world with public cloud, is breathtaking. AWS Aurora is a game changer database engine in DBaaS for Open Source Databases. It provides performance, reliability, availability, and Scalability. With Aurora features like custom endpoints and loadbalancing across replicas, on can explore some interesting use cases. In this post, we will discuss how we solved a customer’s problem by using scalability features of Aurora. We will focus on provisioned Aurora on AWS, not Aurora Serverless.

We have a customer who was doing all the reporting and massive read …

Create Aurora Read Replica With AWS CLI/Lambda Python

Today I was working for a scaleable solution in Aurora. Im going to publish that blog post soon in Searce Blog. As a part of this solution, I want to create Aurora read replicas programmatically. So we have done the create aurora read replica with AWS CLI and Lambda with Python. If you refer the AWS Doc, they mentioned there is no separate module for creating Aurora Read replica in boto3 or cli. Instead we can use create-db-instance. Many people may confused with this term. This blog will help them to create aurora read replicas using AWS CLI and Lambda.

Required Permission:

If you are running this code via lambda then you can use the below policy.

  • Lambda - Create a new role for lambda and attach inline policy
  • EC2 Role - Create a new …

Highly Available Redis Clusters with Automated Sharding Launches at ScaleGrid

PALO ALTO, Calif., January 24, 2019 – ScaleGrid, a rising leader in the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) space, has just announced support for Redis Clusters on their fully managed Redis hosting plans. Redis Cluster is the native sharding implementation available within Redis, an open-source in-memory data structure project, that allows you to automatically shard across multiple Redis nodes without having to rely on external tools and utilities.

ScaleGrid is no novice when it comes to deploying and managing complex, sharded clusters in the cloud, as they have provided one of the most powerful sharding tools for their MongoDB hosting solutions since 2013.

With the introduction of Redis Clusters at ScaleGrid, Redis users can now easily create sharded clusters …

Will IO Size Affect your RDS Performance?​

During our recent consulting with one of our client, We came across an interesting issue on RDS. The baseline is that “Low IO size on your RDS instance can affect your DB performance”.  Yes, It’s IO size, Not IOPS.

We had our production systems running on RDS MySQL with a single master, 3 replicas. All instances are of same type db.m4.4xlarge with same parameter group configuration and the disk size is 1.5 TB. According to the AWS user guide, each of these instances can support up to 4500 (sustained IOPS) guaranteed IOPS.

Find below the Write IOPS graph for all the instances.

It’s understood that Write IOPS / pattern on Master can vary when compared with Slave, due to a lot of factors like binlog row format, log writing etc. But it has to be almost similar for all the slaves given that it …

AWS Lambda And Node.js Tutorial | Getting Started With Serverless

In this tutorial, we will see AWS Lambda And Node.js Tutorial | Getting Started With Serverless. In this post, we will see how we can configure the serverless on mac and up and running with aws lambda with nodejs from scratch. We will look at how we can deploy a simple test aws-nodejs application. But before the start, we need to understand some terminology. So let us know that first.

Function As A Service (FAAS)

The architecture AWS Lambda is called either a Serverless Computing or Function as a Service. It’s groundbreaking technology because of the lack of servers.

But wait, that sounds strange. Well the code is not running on potatoes, is it!? Okay, that’s just a saying.

What’s going on here is that you, …

AWS Aurora MySQL – HA, DR, and Durability Explained in Simple Terms

It’s a few weeks after AWS re:Invent 2018 and my head is still spinning from all of the information released at this year’s conference. This year I was able to enjoy a few sessions focused on Aurora deep dives. In fact, I walked away from the conference realizing that my own understanding of High Availability (HA), Disaster Recovery (DR), and Durability in Aurora had been off for quite a while. Consequently, I decided to put this blog out there, both to collect the ideas in one place for myself, and to share them in general. Unlike some of our previous blogs, I’m not focused on analyzing Aurora performance or examining the architecture behind Aurora. Instead, I want to focus on how HA, DR, and Durability are defined and implemented within the Aurora ecosystem.  We’ll get just deep enough into the weeds to be able to examine these capabilities alone.

Aurora MySQL – What is it?

We’ll start with a simplified …
